, now, homeland security secretary janet napolitano did tour the area yesterday with fema, promising resources. governor andrew cuomo of new york promising $100 million for relieve for these victims of hurricane sandy, and even this morning, announcing there will be a temporary deployment of gas trac trucks to help with the shortage. the residents are desperate and i'm joined by a staten island resident, good morning to you. >> good morning, how are you? >> reporter: tell me, what have you been dealing with? you are all fired up. >> what is going on, we are stuck on this avenue, and a lot of neighbors are and we have no electricity, no phones, no cell phones and we can't get in touch with fema. we tried to put on-line applications and most of us don't have internet access... >> reporter: you checked the internet and you said, i don't have internet. >> i don't have it and, i have been chasing fema and they told me to go to susan wagner and go down by the beach, here and now i found out, we are supposed to be here at 9 o'clock and now they are... >> reporter: you are chasing them aroun
of the fema assistance to get people moved or get them rentals. we're working to get more people in these areas, thing rs starting to get in there. but the two priorities are the power restoration to get power back on. we're going to refer back to the utilities. we got some of the equipment today. we're moving equipment from the west coast to the east coast. you can't drive it fast enough, so the departments are now flying utility trucks and crews to the west coast. some began landing this evening. that's going to continue as we bring in more resources to support utilities. >> when you see the pictures, we've seen this in several areas. when you look at the devastation and homes completely gone, homes just ripped off their foundations. is this what you expected or worse? >> no, this is why the evacuation orders were issued. with storm surge, which is what we get with these type of systems, people tend to think of this as what you see from hurricanes like we saw in mississippi and other storms. when this happens, that's the power of that water. it's not going to be like it's flood
to disaster relief being to shut down fema and place the burden of recovery on the back of the states and the private sector. something that might be a bit off-putting to governor christie on a day like today. we'll have more on the storm and the election in this hour but let's get to richard lui who is in battery park where the waters of new york harbor bashed into vulnerable flood zones. richard, 24 hours since the storm surge began there. how do thiges longs look right ? >> reporter: 24 hours ago looked a lot like this, a lot of white caps, stormy movement of the water. of course, the water at that point 24 hours ago was just starting to rise. since then in that 24 hours the city has been crippled. we're talking about $20 billion in infrastructure damage, $10 billion to $30 billion in lost business reeceipts. if those numbers are right by some estimates, that would be the worst disaster in u.s. history. we're also looking at a subway system, the best in the world some say, that currently is not working, not functional, and won't be for several days. it could be more than that. elec
. >> romney's silence has been deafening. >> would you eliminate aid to fema if you were president? >> as hurricane sandy wreaks havoc across the northeast, first responders, nurses and neighbors have stepped up in tremendous acts of heroism. we'll take a look at these brave men and women tonight. but first we'll bring you the latest on the disaster across the northeast. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the aftermath of sandy is coming into focus and the destruction is heartbreaking. sandy's path devastated miles of shoreline and major communities. officials in nine states are reporting 44 deaths related to the storm. 23 of those here in the state of new york. it's estimated to cost between $30 and $50 billion. you only need to look at the images of the flooding to see why. a 14-foot storm surge in lower manhattan roadways were overflowing. tunnels filled with water. streets were submerge d. most of lower manhattan continues to be without power at this hour. the new york city subway system is still not running as workers deal with the flooded tunnels and th
is recalled with the im. talk about fema, people think about the bush legacy. and so, he doesn't have make those contrastic splits, never mind about mitt romney, that helps him because he's doing stuff and it's all out there without the effort. >> you get the unearned assist from michael brown coming out. >> we'll talk about brownie. >> you couldn't ask for that. you couldn't make that bet. >> but there's karen welcome. hi. >> welcome to the show. i want to say, it's not just the presidential thing. it's also -- there's incredibly moving -- let's not forget the human toll this storm's taken. >> absolutely. >> the images of the president consoling americans in the wake of this massive disaster are incredibly powerful images. and what you heard in the president, what you heard from the president on the stump just now was empathy, this sense that he is fighting for you, that you have a seat at the table, middle class, working class americans, that he is there for you. and that fundamentally has been a problem for mitt romney. not only do you have the president looking presidential and making
bloomberg predicting more bodies will be found. and president obama fema headquarters this morning, holding a conference call with the governors of new york, new jersey, and connecticut. and it's that '70s show in the garden state all over again. new jersey governor chris christie ordering odd-even rationing to ease the incredibly long lines. and odd numbers on the license plates, odd days and even numbers on the plates, in some 12 counties and governor mitt romney wrapping up an event in new hampshire and governor gin cal travelling with him. we'll talk to him in a few moments. back to staten island and the storm after the storm. those escaping death now pleading with city officials for food, water, and any help they can get. to anna kooiman on staten island now, anna? >> all right, well, good morning to you, neil. yeah, you mentioned over 169 deaths at least caused by hurricane sandy and 22 of those right here on staten island at least. and as police are saying, those numbers could be going up, as they continue to uncover debris and potentially find more bodies. we're about 300 yards from
what a great job they're doing in northeast with the hurricane. they're not doing a great job. fema is bailing. fema wants to help out, should come in here with generators, plug them, in get gas stations up and running and people can live their lives again. get generators to get the power going. then you won't see the people dumpster diving or waiting for lines to get gas. >> andrea: i want to get bob in here. what about the politics of it? we're four days away from an election. should president obama be doing more than photo op in new jersey and one in the war room? >> bob: let me get the marathon out of the way. the fact it's in central park is more insidious. what you are doing is picking out isolated incidents here. there were 8.5 million people out of electricity when it was at its peak. 3.8 million without electricity. they cut in half number without electricity. fema is doing math job. fact of the matter is this has been, this is one of the most massive storms, storm surges we have seen. you can't say it would be nice if they can do more. they are doing evening they can. i do
,000. and at the time that covered the whole cost of the house. >> so fema, was it fema money. >> it was fema money. i said to my. >> did you cash the check? >> yeah. >> do you feel bad about that. >> sure. i won't do it again. >> should do you 250 back to the government? >> i give more than that to charity. i'm not going to give it to the government it will waste it. >> that's true. that's my beef, too. so, you say that if you are in any kind of, like malibu, california, maybe you are up on the hill but that's a fire zone. so, if you are in any kind of zone, that may be risky, the government should say hey, you are on your own and if you can find an insurer who is going to do that for exorbitant price if you can't that's tough. >> exactly. private insurer are experts in figuring out what's a risk. that's information that the government obliterates by saying we don't want anyone to lose. we will cover you. >> bill: they cover you at a high rate. they are not giving you bonus on this. if you have to buy insurance beachfront government. >> you are not paying the real cost. otherwise, the flood insurance
by the red cross and fema and janet napolitano was on the ground. those are all important steps at the very least symbolically for the residents of this neighborhood who have felt cut off. they're still kind of angry that it took so long to get here, but fema and the red cross are on the ground right now, so that's a positive step. the thing to remember, the fema facility, red cross, they're about a mile away from here. a lot of the people in this neighborhood don't necessarily know they're there because they have no tv, no internet, no phone service. little cell service, so word of mouth isn't getting around to quite as many people as maybe as those who could use that facility over there. so that's still a challenge for the red cross and fema to serve people inside this neighborhood and get aid to them when people don't necessarily know they're only about a mile away. >> thank you very much. as we said, so many were frustrated, but they're there now trying to help. a lot of people there have trouble communicating. a these are areas where there's a lot of poverty and that's something that i
better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day
after comments earlier this year about the way peopla i -- theway fema is run. and the democratic chair accuse the governor of taking advantage of the governor for the storm relief rally. michael, they are upset with governor romney in part because he was in dayton, ohio, he was campaigning in ohio but he decided instead of doing what they normally do to ask for support for the victims of sandy and that has some 0 folks upset. >> it has the left upset. it's interesting to watch this unfold. the left thinks that the right is going to attack the president of the united states for acting like the president of the united states of america much like they attacked george bush with katrina. bush made the same phone calls that the president is making now except to the governor of louisiana and the mayor of new orleans, all turned down his help. and the rest is history. but they are trying to play politics with all of this and global warming, they are trying to blame somehow in the future to elect him these things won't happen. all the while they forget their president barack obama cut fema. meg
, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather reports are. government's not going to come and baby sit you, and the idea some people think government's going to provide their day care, their health care, their dental care, their housing. government overpromises and underdelivers. they
for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather reports are. government's not going to come and baby sit you, and the idea some people think government's going to provide their day care, their health care, their dental care, their housing. government overpromises and underdelivers. they bankrupted social security and medicare, and i would bet obama care goes bankr
in and assess their damage. we have information from fema for a contact number. we are moving along >>shepard: what is the thinking on when your people might be able to get settled again with businesses open and school back in session? >>guest: our best bet is based on the electric frist but our best bet is school on monday. people will probably not move back in their houses for a month or so. the flooding was extensive. the little film of muck and mire that coats everything will cause them to throw most of their first-floor belongings out. >>shepard: i have seen that theme reported in new orleans and it is absolutely in fun. when can people come in and aset? >>guest: we got word from the governor's office to file with fema using an 800 number to file and then you can get an okay to go in and take out debris. >>shepard: i remember a month after the storm, katrina, on the mississippi coast, speaking with the mayor of a small town down there where for a mile inland everything was rubble. he started to tell me, our problems now are mental. walking around in this, living in this, not being able t
had a debate what romney said or didn't say about fema. if you want to look it up on google, romney was asked if he'd close down fema and the quote was absolutely. now he likes fema. >> dana: wait, so does that mean he would get rid of assistance for people? that is what you are implying. >> bob: i said closed down fema. >> eric: he would rather have it handeded by the states. >> bob: absolutely he would close feena. >> greg: so nody sister assistance -- no disaster assistance ever. >> dana: obama will let any illegal getting through the border before january 1, they get welfare benefits for 20 years. that's true. you can google it. it's out there. >> bob: you don't say anything about the two-face. >> dana: i have one. roll the graphic. >> greg gutfeld dream of my five. >> dana: my puppy jasper was sick michigan husband had to take him to the vet. i couldn't sleep all night. fell asleep at 5:00 a.m. and i had a dream we had a show, five of us but bob. he was in my kitchen. party going on. it didn't know who the substitute was. it had to prepare for the show. greg looked at me and he
. can the military and fema make a difference? alex perez is in clifton, new jersey. good morning to you, sir. >> reporter: dan, good morning. everyone is hoping that shipment will make a big difference almost immediately. this gas station here sold 8,000 gallons into the late hours and won't be expecting another shipment, another delivery, until this afternoon. now, most of the people here are hoping that this fema and military shipment that's headed our way will make a difference in this region very soon. this morning, new york is opening up. and new jersey is cracking down, in an effort to improve the tri-state gas shortage. the new york port has been open for gas tankers for the first time since sandy made landfall. >> we saw a fuel barge coming down the hudson river before. >> reporter: until things return to normal, governor chris christie has signed an executive order, rationing gas for passenger vehicles in 12 counties. here's how it works. starting at noon, owners of cars with license plates ending in an even number, can only purchase gas on even number days. odd numbers on odd
for the president>> steve: we saw the president at fema yesterday and if he goes out on the stump latter today and attack romney and starts talking about binders and big bird and stuff that. while tens of millions of people are in harmy way that doesn't look presidential. >> i think he will look presidential. it will be a big moment for the president not only for him but our government and fema to be on the main stage. it is it an opportunity for surrogates to mentioned that romney would eliminate fema. the conventional wisdom. low turn out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is e
help from fema, the federal emergency management agency. the homeland security secretary, janet napolitano, who's in new york city, says that's only just the beginning. but many residents of staten island which was inundated by the storm's tidal surge, say they're getting virtually no help yet. and their desperation is now turning to anger. cnn's brian todd is on the island. he's joining us live. brian, tell us what's going on. >> reporter: wolf, we're in the new dorf beach section cedar grove avenue. this place is still flooded out even after the waters receded. people just barely able to kind of wade through the water, try to get to homes and assess damage. you've got a church that's flooded out here to your left, my right. and our photo journalist can pan back over this way down marine way. look down here with just the debris and people trying to gather things and bring things out and clear their homes of all the wreckage. what we know now, wolf, is that the bodies of two young boys who were washed away from their mother during the storm have been found. they were found in a
say that the same federal government that controls fema that can't preposition gasoline trucks near service station and preposition bottles and mres is the same federal government that wants to control your healthcare. if they can't hand out water bottles on time and properly how do they handle hip replacement surgery? we are watching the incompetentence of the federal government on display. >> sean: you know ohio. i there was with you in 2000 and 2004 and 2006 you have predicted with pinpoint accuracy what has happened in that state. a month ago, maybe it was two months ago you told me barack obama was going to win, ohio. you said that things have now changed dramatically in the swing state of ohio. where do you stand tonight, sir? >> sean hannity, this state has flipped from the blue column not red column for three reasons. number one, secretary of state john houston in columbus would tell you that there is 220,000 fewer he democratic votes in early voting and 30,000 more republican votes. that means there is a 250,000 vote flip which is the margin by which obama won ohio in 2008.
